    I am beginning to dislike both my Pentax F 50/14 and 50/1.7, these 2 lenses cause so many focus issues that I now rarely use them. I have 4 Pentax camera bodies and can only get them to work nicely on the K20D

    Dear Violini can you tell me how to synchronise the mirror with the shutter.Because when the mirror is up then the shutter can fire .When the the film is transporterted it will span the shutter. Is it possible to trigger the shutter when the mirrorbox is out?If this is possible how can I span the shutter.Because I changed the mirrormotor and assemled the camera the mirror went down the shutter won't fire or the film woulden't transport .Thank you very much Rob D
